Includes: One BPA-Free 20 ounce portable water bottle with protective cap, Two BPA-Free 20+ ounce portable, resealable bowls and a handy carabineer (clip) for attaching to your leash, backpack, purse, etc.
Bring this sleek, lightweight hydration system (bottle and bowl) with you for long walks, hikes, camping, dog shows or bike rides for yourself and your dog. Almost weightless and clips to bags, purses, belts or leashes, or fits in the pocket of your jeans.
H2FidO not only looks great, but keeps your dog healthy and happy.
Using recyclable plastics we have created a collapsible bottle and bowl that has great strength and can be clipped and used repeatedly while exploring the great outdoors or hitting the sidewalks of the city. It is recyclable too.
The bowls also can be used for dog food as well. Food can be placed in the bag and sealed for transport and then clipped on the carbineer. After use, just reseal and place back on the carabineer.
This is a great gift for your friends who have dogs also.

Once home, reopen, clean and allow to dry.
How do I clean the H2FidO bottle and bowls? Rinse with soapy water and leave open to dry.
How Much Water does the system hold? Each water bottle holds 20 ounces of water. The bowl will hold 20oz and more.
Is the H2FidO system BPA free? Yes.
How much water should my dog drink daily? According to the ASPCA a dog needs at least one ounce of water for each pound of body weight per day. Many loving conscientious dog owners go to great lengths to ensure their dog has a healthy diet, considering brands, consulting their veterinarian, etc. Meanwhile they may forget that an always present bowl of water is the most important part of their dogs diet.
Why is hydration important? Just like people, 80% of a dogs body is water. Water provides the means for most of the process and chemical reactions that keep the body working. Water helps the body filter waste, regulate body temperature, digest food and circulate blood. Dehydration can cause serious health problems including kidney and heart damage even resulting in death.
according to the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine (VMRCVM), while a dog can lose half of the fat and protein in his body and still function decently, losing even a tenth of his water can lead to fatal dehydration. Because of the great importance of water for dogs, owners need to understand how much and what kind of water their dogs need, how frequently their pets need to drink water, and how to find clues about the state of an animalís health from water consumption. So bring water!
